San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in a 4-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, July 10.
Fantasy Tip: Crawford has eight RBI in his last four games, and he is on pace to drive in more than 100 for the year. He won't hit a ton of homers, but as long as he is driving in runs at his current clip, he needs to be starting in all formats.

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford was 3-for-3 with a double, a home run and three RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, July 8.
Fantasy Tip: In his last 11 games, Crawford is batting .400 (16-for-40) with three home runs, eight runs scored and 16 RBI -- he now has 58 ribbies on the year, which leads all major-league shortstops. While none of his other numbers are eye popping, Crawford deserves to be owned in all leagues.

San Francisco Giants INF Ruben Tejada is expected to serve as the club's primary option at third base versus left-handed pitching, according to manager Bruce Bochy. He can also be used to back up SS Brandon Crawford.
Fantasy Tip: Tejada hit just .176 in 34 at-bats for the St. Louis Cardinals this season but was 4-for-12 versus southpaws and is a career .282 hitter against lefties. He's worth rostering in deep NL-only fantasy leagues and can be used as a productive source of cap relief in DFS whenever the Giants are facing a lefty.

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a run scored and five RBI against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 28.
Fantasy Tip: Crawford came up a home run short of the cycle, but it was still a huge night with his five RBI matching a season high (set May 17 against the Padres). He's still without a home run in June, but his 49 RBI are one shy of Trevor Story/Xander Bogaerts, who lead the position with 50. Even with that, Crawford is better suited to larger mixed leagues until he rediscovers his power stroke.

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (rest) is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 27. SS Ramiro Pena is starting in his place at shortstop and batting seventh versus Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Crawford is simply getting a night off. Pena interestingly has 10 hits in his first 25 at-bats this season as a part-timer, but having not done anything of note since first coming up in 2009, he's someone that shouldn't even be an option for daily formats tonight.

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is hitting third against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Wednesday, June 15, with 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) not playing.
Fantasy Tip: Crawford is quietly one of the more productive shortstops for fantasy owners, with a .268/.345/.427 slash line and six home runs and 37 RBI. Moving to the third spot gives him more daily fantasy value with the opportunity to drive in more runs in the middle of the order. He's a fine addition to any fantasy lineup in the matinee.

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford drove in three runs Monday, June 13, in an 11-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Fantasy Tip: Crawford's power may be off a bit as the third month of the season is midway through, but a .267-6-36 line for the season isn't bad. Crawford has 58 hits and is worth the play in DFS and regular formats.
